    I thought it was about time I showed some of the things I've made on my CNC C-Beam Machine.
    Mostly used it for woodworking projects. Some aluminum and Plastic as well. Hope you like them. :)

    A question. The Aztec and the Wedding sign, are the different coloured pieces separate items added to the final model? :rolleyes:

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate the kudos!

    GrayUK, the wedding sign is solid oak with walnut and Padauk pieces glued on.
    All the details were V carved.

    The Aztec calendar is made from a solid maple base with walnut veneer over the top. I then V carved the details to expose the maple below the veneer. The inner circle is made from solid Padauk and the next ring is made from solid maple. It was an experiment that turned out pretty good.

    FYI, I use fusion 360 for the cam operations.

    Thanks again!

    Love the train! My 7 year old son would absolutely love something like this. Is the design your own?

    Thanks! The design is based on pictures i found from when I was a kid and my father got to ride on it. I also used images from the internet. So yes, the design is my own. The entire train was modeled in 3d in AutoCAD to help me figure out how to build it. It ended up being almost 6’ long and about 10”tall. It weighs quite a bit too. Made from Peruvian walnut, oak, maple, and some Wenge.
    It took about 9 months to make. Thanks again.
